Having only picked one up for the first time in my life less than two years ago, I don't know a whole lot about guns*. I enjoy shooting my revolver, of course, but for a long time now I've wanted a little auto pistol to call my very own. I've been considering a 9mm, perhaps the Taurus PT 24/7 compact or something comparable, but I've never really been satisfied with the aesthetics of polymer frames. Sure, they're fun to shoot and are useful, dependable tools but I've never seen one that made me say, "ooooo!" like the design of a M1911 does. And until now, I thought that M1911-type pistols were too large for concealed carry and came in nothing smaller than 9mm.

Is it a petty thing that I want my pistol to be pretty?
*this could become really obvious because I might have incorrectly guessed that the two pistols pictured are in the M1911 style, small and of a lesser caliber than 9mm. As I've said, I'm learning!
